Mahou Shoujo Site, Mahou Shoujo Tokushusen Asuka Recommendations
Both shows are "Dark Mahou Shoujo" exponents, showing us "magical girls" in a really obscure scenario that involves death, blood, suffering, and psychological damage to the main characters.
The girls are in real risk to die and villains are genuinely evil, also, some "allied" characters are not particularly "good ones", having some psychopathic or evil attitudes.
For both shows being a magical girl is more a curse than a gift.
also, yuri implications
The same character scenario where it involves girls with worldly issues in which of of the sudden they receive some kind of powers to get back at those who gave them such issues in the first place. Btw , that part with Asuka was for the antagonist.
